Product Information:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning the public about a counterfeit version of the weight-loss drug Alli 60 mg capsules (120 count refill pack) being sold over the Internet, particularly at online auction sites.

The counterfeit product is illegal and unsafe. FDA advises people who believe that they have a counterfeit product not to use the drug. There is no evidence at this time that the counterfeit Alli product has been sold in retail stores.


Fakes Reported By Our Users:

Our users have not reported any counterfeit products

Warnings / Hazards:

Alli is an FDA-approved, over-the-counter weight-loss drug that contains Orlistat as its active ingredient. The counterfeit version of Alli does not contain Orlistat; instead it is made with varying amounts of Sibutramine, a stimulant drug.

Preliminary laboratory tests revealed the counterfeit version contained sibutramine and not orlistat. Since that time, FDA lab tests on the counterfeit product show that people may be taking three times the usual daily dose (and twice the recommended maximum dose) of sibutramine if they are following the dosing directions for Alli.

This excessive amount of sibutramine is dangerous to people who have a history of cardiovascular disease

Recommended Action:

Stop taking the drug.

Contact your health care professional if you are experiencing more than mild side effects, especially if you have a history of cardiovascular disease.

Call the FDA's Office of Criminal Investigations (OCI) at 800-551-3989 or by visiting the OCI Web site; you may also contact Alli's maker, GlaxoSmithKline at 800-671-2554
